Yun Hyong-keun at Venice Biennial 2019

My soul lifted as I entered the #yunhyongkeun exhibit ‘A Retrospective’ for @venice.art.biennale @labiennale at @palazzofortuny_venezia. 🖤 Tucked in a cornered labyrinth of the city, this palazzo barely had any other visitors while I was there. A welcomed art viewing experience during the hustle & bustle of art fair #venicebiennale2019 hopping. More welcomed was discovering a new artist who clearly has been connected to me from a previous life. I cried. I have found another ancestor from my genealogical tree. Viewing Yun Hyong-keun’s work & reading about his philosophy on creating was like walking thru a vivid dream. It felt so familiar even though I’d never come across him before. We spoke the same language & see the same movements. I sat down in the middle of this room & meditated... allowing myself to feel the energy of this raw building and these powerful paintings combining together in one force. I will be riding on this high for quite some time & eager to get home to begin my next paintings.... More on my #venicebiennale visits on @latelacuratorial stories....
